Help!

What tools do you use for your DLG?


Greetings, I was wondering what tools can be found for a DLG build, ex. stands, throw meters, scales? I am currently working on my old trusty lighthawk and need some tools? Thanks, Roel

The tools I use are listed in my list there... I've since added 2* digital CG stands to my workshop as well.

Hi ThomasLee, thanks for the link. It is quite helpful. Is there a specific tool you use as a throw/deflection meter? Thanks, Roel

Once you have all the necessary tools and materials layed out, it's important to start each building session with a generous sip of cold beer. Repeat as needed!

In the "what did you do with your DLG" thread, someone recently posted photos of some cool little deflection gauges. Not sure where they come from, they may be 3D printed? I'd love to get ahold of a set of those.
